    You could use getline() to read in the first two chars, and then a simple if statement can be used to determine if the variable you read the first two char's into equals "H3". If it does, read the rest of the line, else skip to the next line--you can do that with cin.ignore() or by reading the rest of the line into a dummy variable that you don't use.
